Letter: Strong reason to support light rail
Sunday, December 9, 2012
Glaciers are receding and the oceans are rising. Storms and drought are ravaging our coast and heartland.
Climate change is upon us, brought on by global warming, which is aggravated by fossil fuel consumption. Yet some people continue to oppose light rail, which would reduce fossil fuel consumption.
"The cost is too high" is the main complaint. Which is worse, I ask, public debt or an unlivable planet?
